    Easy to use. No hot flashes at all. Easier on the liver than pills so the Doctor said instead of pills. I sleep really good. I always had depression, So for that I don't know. It might have taken some of the edge off. I have to use men's deodorant now. Women's doesn't cut it. Problem is waiting for menopause to be over. HAHAHAHA

    I've been using this patch for about 10 years to treat significant night sweats. There have been no side effects and the sweats went away in the first month or so.

On week two, I experienced dizziness and a little bit of anxiety, so I tried lowering the dose to half a patch, which did the trick. I've had some bleeding but this is much preferable to the symptoms I ha ... Show Full Comment

Called the Dr after a week of this who said give it a few months. The clotting stopped and the bleeding ... Show Full Comment
